    This is a strange one....

    If I send an image via email (Mac Mail) and then put the image in the trash, I am unable to empty the trash unless I quit the Mail app.

    FInder is stating the file is in use...

    Something is getting hung up, but not sure where. Thanks in advance.

    I see this all the time at work and have resorted to killing Mail to empty the trash. I'd like to know how to bypass this too.
